    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Two international and interdisciplinary high pressure student ateliers have been done and evaluated, one to explore possible future scenario’s for Strofylia (Greece) as requested by local and regional authorities and stakeholders, the other to put urban agriculture on the Lugo (Galicia, Spain) agenda. Aims of the ateliers have been to create a student learning environment in practice and make use of the expected conceptual flexibility and creativity of the students to come up with unexpected ideas. We have used interviews to evaluate the ateliers. The ateliers provide a rich learning by practice environment and offer new perspectives to practitioners and policy makers. Not much study has been carried out on high-pressure student ateliers in land use planning and landscape architecture. An outline is presented for a more thorough study of this type of ateliers to understand advantages and shortcomings of different atelier approaches.
